    ...looks to the precedent of the Progressive Era, when South Dakota was pretty Progressive (went for TR in 1912), but in North Dakota...whoo!  The Nonpartisal League dominated both mainstream political parties in the 1910s.  As in Minnesota and its DFL, where the powerfully progressive Farmer-Labor party eventually merged with the Ds, in North Dakota, the same happened with the NPL.  In fact, the official name there is the Democratic-NPL Party.

    And yeah, as similar as ND is to us, they're also similar to Montana, probably in some ways we are not.
